AUSSIE VALUES WEEK PAYS OFF FOR PM

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s week starts off on a high note, with Newspoll in The Australian narrowing the lead Labor has over the Coalition to 52-48 two-party preferred. A week of sprouting “Aussie values” and a crackdown on 457 visas appears to have paid in the polling, at least.

    C’mon Josh, you can do better than that, “Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s week starts off on a high note, with Newspoll in The Australian narrowing the lead Labor has over the Coalition to 52-48 two-party preferred.” Their primary vote hasn’t changed and as has been stated in various other places the movement is within the MOE for Newspoll.

      High note is fairly relative for this government, to be fair.

        I suppose any sign of anything going upwards would be a high point for the rabble we currently have ‘running’ the country.
